Number Formation Rhyme

Number 1 is straight and tall,

Stand him up, don’t let him fall.

Number 2 has a curvy top,

With a little platform then you stop.

Make two curls for number 3,

A curl for you and a curl for me.

Number 4 starts straight like 1,

Now make a cross like I have done!

A straight neck and a curl for number 5,

A cap on his head brings him alive.

6 has a sloping back curled round,

Tuck his tail in safe and sound.

7 has a cap and a long straight back.

He’s easy to write says Clever Jack!

8 is the curvy path in the street,

Around and down and up and meet.

A big round 0 and a long straight back,

That’s how you do number 9 says Jack.

Number 1 and a big round 0,

That’s number 10 you 


Letter Formation Rhyme

'Star of the Week!'

Our school mascot is Bubsy. You will have the

pleasure of meeting Bubsy when he

'Star of the Week' on a Friday, spend time with their family

and will be brought back on a Monday. Children will share

their weekend news with the rest of the class. 


Reading Books

We have now started sending

home reading books, along with Reading Records. We ask that

you make a brief comment the record book each time you

hear your child read. Make reading time a pleasure for you both. 

Sharing a book at bedtime allows children to learn

the importance of putting expression into their reading and it is a great time for you to relax! A great emphasis is put upon 

reading in Reception so ensure that you read with your child 

as often as possible. Read a variety of texts including

magazines, bookscomics, poems and information books!

The Phoenix Library offers a range of these and

is a great place to start!

Here are some great resources to purchase to help your child with their reading at home xxx


Take a look on this website...


Kind Reminders!

Please can all clothes be labelled with your child's name.

We will collect £1.50 every Monday to cover the cost of

our daily fruit snack and also our weekly cooking sessions.
